I have been getting the update error E02018 the entire time I've been downloading the game. But every time, I will simply click confirm and Update again. When it starts downloading, the remaining download will be updated. For example:

First time: 1.2gb/8.1gb

Second time: 1gb/6.9gb


So I've gotten to the point it's 2.1mb/13.7mb and I'm stuck here..

Every time I click confirm, Update, it will be stuck at 2.1mb/13.7mb and the download speed will quickly go from 1mb to 30kb/s and the update error will come up.

When I try to send error report, it gives me a message saying 'File Send Fail.'

EDIT: Randomly, it went to 5.1mb/13.7mb, and now the download is stuck at (1.6mb / 10.2mb)

EDIT 2: Thanks to /u/cascadecask , using vpn worked! Got pass being stuck and got into Stage 2 download, but there is a 'Play Now' button and I can start the game now.

Link to cascadecask's comment/instruction:
